Jeff asks Tracy about camp life, and she outs the problems between the older and younger groups, and says you can either whine about it or you can take the situation in hand, so she did the latter. Jeff asks Natalie (who?) whether it's just a function of some people getting along and others not. Natalie says that's clearly true; some people have been "segregated," and there are two shelters, so DEAL, WRINKLIES! Jeff tells Chet that he must be pretty nervous, all things considered, when there are seven people in the other shelter and three people in his. This doesn't sound good, after all. Chet says that it does look bad, but that it's out of his hands. Jeff asks Erik if, were he Chet, he'd be concerned. "I'd be very, very concerned," Erik says somberly. Oh, quiet.
Jeff asks Mary about alliances, and she says that people go in different directions, but that she feels pretty secure in her position. Jeff asks Joel how you decide whom to vote for at this point, and for some reason, Joel uses this as an opportunity to insist that, while he has a conscience, he doesn't mind sending people home. It's better than "I target the people who are smarter than I am," I suppose. He goes on to say absolutely nothing that answers Jeff's question, but he has prepared a speech about "a game of loyalty and a game of deception," and blah bling blah.
Jeff reminds everyone that Kathy has the idol, and she says she's keeping it. Erik votes. Tracy votes. Jason votes. Kathy votes. Mikey votes for Chet, saying, "You blew it with your body, your brains, and your heart." Well, then. Natalie votes. Chet votes. Joel votes. Mary votes. Alexis votes, saying, "I just went with the majority; I'm sorry." When they return, does anyone wish to play an idol? No. First vote, Chet. Second vote, Chet. Third vote, Tracy. And then: Mary. And she's not too worried, because couldn't that be whom Kathy/Chet/Tracy voted for? And Mary again. (She squinches her eyes a little.) And then Tracy again. Mikey makes a face at Jason, who smugs back at him. That dude is really, really smug, kind of all the time. And then Mary again. And then Mikey leans back and says, "Whaaat?" I don't understand why he doesn't just think these are the Chet/Kathy/Tracy votes. He's still okay here. Only three non-plan votes, out of ten, have been cast. According to Mikey's theory, four votes are left -- two Chets and two Tracys. But he's clearly upset anyway. And then another Mary vote, and now, they know. Joel pretends to be surprised. And then Mary, so that will do it. Note: that's only eight votes read. Five for her, two for Chet, one for Tracy. Nobody else can go, so we're done here. Mikey's mouth hangs open. Joel grins like a loon. Mary is snuffed. Alexis looks miserable. Mary walks off. Jeff announces that "Mary never saw that coming." He's all excited about the "blindside," and tells Kathy to leave the idol as he sends them back to camp. Dun!
